FDP Forum / The Squier Forum / Squire Bullet Strat pickup resistance measurement

I was just going through the herd this morning, measuring the pickup resistance of my guitars. I decide to pick up my daughter's Bullet Strat and measured them, and they are each in the 3.5 range.

So is the upshot that if you like REALLY underwound Strat pickups, you should get a set of Squire Bullets?

FWIW my Fralins on my own Strat came out N-7.67 M-7.5 B-7.9

DC Resistance does not tell the whole story as the pickup consists of Inductive, Capacitive and resistive reactance. For instance I have a set of Aguilar dual coil Jazz bass pickups with similar output of many 7-8k ohm pickups.
I also would like to know why you are doing this?

Also would need to measure multiple ones.

Lower-end guitars aren't known for their "one to another" similarity, even in this day and age of modern QC and components.
